Windows 10: when is the desktop not the desktop

    when is the desktop not the desktop

    apparently when one moves the folder - which I did to the D drive by changing the Location.
    The desktop under THIS PC works fine. The one under Quick access does not.
    If I chg the location back to C drive it again works. Chg again to D and it does not work.

    Sounds like a bug to me. The other folders under Quick access have also been moved and they work - Downloads, Documents & Pictures.

    anyone else see this, or is it just my systems. It does it on my desktop and both laptops.

    Yes, this happens on my system, too. If I move Desktop, it will not correct the location of the folder under Frequent Folders, but it will correct the location of my downloads folder.

    I suppose that the only way to fix this is to unpin the invalid Desktop folder and then go to This PC and pin the Desktop folder there.
